“BAIT FOR FRESH WATER
Tarpon” headlines this story from
the Port Isabel Pilot, that stem
and uncompromising exponent of
truth in fish stories:
‘Two sawfish, one 18 feet ana
one 16 feet, were caught by the
ciew of the schooner Dorothy while
shrimping off shore in the Gull of
Mexico last Thursday. The fish
were brought into port here, and
after being displayed for a day,
their saws were cut off and their
remains consigned to the waters of
the deep.
•This is the type of fish usually
used for bait In fishing for fresh
water tarpon. This species of
tarpon, in striking, are caught on
the bony saws of the bait, and thus
are landed. However, the two
brought In by the Dorothy were
aomewhat small for bait for this
species of tarpon.”
* • •
THE TROUBLE WITH COL.
Grider Perkins is one not uncom
mon among experts when they get
out of their own line and invade the
sacred precincts of the other fel
low’s expertness.
Now Col. Perkins is s self admit
ted expert on salt water fishing.
He knows all the kinks and quirks
of the game, and when it comes to
yams about salt water tarpon, salt
*ater redfish, salt water sawfish,
he is without a peer among the
members of the Rio Grande Valley
Ananias club.
But he has waxed too bold.
Secure in his knowledge of the
habits of salt water fish, he has
seen fit to stick his finger in the
fresh water fish business.
Colonel, these sawfish of yours
are all wet and too salt.
We of the fresh water tarpon
school recognise the potency of
sawfish as tarpon bait, but—
They must be fresh water saw
fish.
Colonel, you just ought to see a
fresh water sawfish.
It would bring tears to your
ancient eyes.

' the WORD •TRUCKER" AS
used in the Valley is misleading
and is bringing some of our good
citizens into arguments with other
good citizens, when they both mean
the same thing.
Instead of using the word “truck
er" as applied to everyone using a
truck to carry merchandise or fruit
and vegetables out of the Valley, let's
define it this way.
A trucker is one who carries fruit
and vegetables or other merchandise
tor hire, filling the same relation to
the owner of the goods concerned
as does the railroad carrier.
And then let’s say this:
A peddler trucker is one who
buys his fruit and vegetable cargo
as cheaply as he can and peddles
it the country over.
• • •
NOW WITH THOSE TWO DEFI
nitions firmly in mind, surely all
of us agree that there is no fight in
the Valley on the trucker.
It's the peddler who helps to
knock the whey out of prices by un
loading his stuff here, there and
everywhere at whatever he can get
for it—
When stuck with a truckload or
uart of a truckload.
When folks from the Valley ask
that the minimum load of trucks
^raised to 14.000 pounds, they are
aking of the trucker and how
the increased load may enable him
to cut what really are “freight"
rates.
They are not thinking of the
•‘peddler’’ and how this increase
of 7 000 pounds in his minimum load
will’enable him to still further de
moralize a great range of markets
WE BELIEVE THAT THIS FAIL
ure to distinguish between the two
passes is responsible for the pres
ent mig-up—
Which finds one set of growers
•aking the legislature to increase the
minimum truckload with no reser
VaArTanother set asking that the
present minimum be maintained un
is also passed forbidding
* ‘trucker” to buy and sell fruit
or vegetables._

Were Disarmed and Jeered by Pair

Covington County Sheriff, as Told
to the Hattiesburg; American
HATTIESBURG. Miss . March
29. (A*>—Raymond Hamilton, the
Texas bandit, shot me in the back
of the head Thursday when two
deputies and I surprised him at a
negro cabin about 10 miles north
of Prentiss.
I am positive the man was Ham
ilton and the reason that I did not
attempt to shoot him is because at
that time it would have been sui
cide for me to have raised by hand
toward an automatic shotgun ly
ing the back of my car.
Joe Duckworth and Marshall
Magee, two Covington county de
puties and I drove into Jeff Davis
county to help hunt for the ban
dits.
We reached a short cut-off road
nine or ten miles from Prentiss
and found that both ends of the
road were blocked by posse men.
I agreed t» drive down Into the
“interior" and see if the robbers
were hidden there.
After going about half a mile
we arrived at a negro cabin. We
drove into the yard and an old
negro woman appeared. I asked her
if she had seen anything of two
men in a car and as she opened
her mouth to answer, an auto
mobile drove from behind the
house.
Two negro men were in the front
seat.
When this car came into sight
the negro driving it saw us and
stopped. At that instant Hamilton
and his comrade, whom I did not
recognise, rose up from behind
the front seat and opened fire on
us.
A bullet from Hamilton's auto
mane rifle ripped off my hat and
creased the scalp in the back of
my head just as I turned to grab
my shotgun.
Just then another ear arrived.
It contained County Agent U. E.
Smith of Jeff Davis county and
Corley, a federal farm representa
tive.
These men were disarmed by the
bandits. At that moment a second
car drove up. This car contained
Tarver McIntosh, E. L. Dent and
Will Thomas.
Hamilton ordered these three
men to get out, throw down their
guns and hold up their hands.
Then, after collecting all of the
weapons. Hamilton ordered all of
his captives to get on the side of
the Smith car and Smith was told
to drive down the road.

A rise In the Rio Grande ranging
from a foot and a half at Browns
ville to 3.2 feet at Mercedes, and
light showers over the Valley sec
tion were reported Friday.
The rise in the river is the result
of rains last week in the Del Rio
section. The Brownsville weather
bureau reported that the extent of
the rise can not be determined
exactly In the Valley because the
river in most points has been be
low the bottom of the gauges. How
ever, rises of 19 and 1.3 feet were
reported on successive days at Mer
cedes, and the river now is at 1.5
feet at Brownsville, a rise of at
least that amount.
The Valley had only light show

prospect of more rain. Rainfall re
ported was 03 of an inch at
Brownsville, .06 of an inch at Mer

Guaranteed Arrival of Your
Advertising Travel A. B. C.
For Best Sales Mileage
Suppose your business required that you take a trip to
Chicago. You'd buy a ticket that would assure arrival
at that destination. Anyone else can travel over the same
route, arrive at the same place, at the identical rate you
paid for your transportation.
Until the Audit Bureau of Circulations (A. B. C.) was
organized, the merchant who spent money for transport -
v ing his store message to a certain number of homes found
frequently that he was buying sales mileage but was not
getting it.
All any newspaper can do is to gather and present
reliable news of its community, the state, the nation and
the world, plus convey business news to a definitely known
number of families. Anyone can be his own Judge as to the
satisfaction he gets from a newspaper as a news organ.
But unless the newspaper is a member of the Audit Bureau
of Circulations, there is no other accepted standard of know
ing HOW MUCH circulation a publication has—HOW it is
secured—WHERE It is distributed.
An impartial A. B. C. auditor has no interest to serve
but that of the man who buys advertising space. His in
vestigations are carried on strictly from the advertisers’
standpoint. Once every year this searching audit is made.

Culbertson Says ‘Bah’ When
Sims Makes Freak Slam Bid
NEW YORK. March 29.—OP)—
One freak hand and the simple
but astounding way P. Hal and
Dorothy Sims bid it was the sub
ject of much controversy Friday
as the Culbertson-Sims bridge
marathon of 150 rubbers swung
into its eighth session and 29th
rubber with Ely and Josephine
Culbertson 2.530 points ahead.
"One club," said Dorothy Sims,
with the Jack the only club in
her hand. (Mrs. Sims is noted for
her psychics.)
“Pass," was all Culbertson had
to say.
“Seven clubs,” said Sims, slow
ly but without hesitation.
Culbertson, startled, glanced at
his bulky opponent.
Mrs. Culbertson, smiling slight
ly, passed.
Mrs. Suns did, too. She was
tense and apparently dismayed.
“By the way. Hal,” queried
Culbertson, arching his eyebrows,
"is this contract bridge we are
playing?”
Sims thought a moment and
chuckled. He shifted heavily in
his chair.
“I was under the impression it
might be pinochle," he answered.
Mrs. Sims moved nervcmsly. as
Culbertson opened with the club
deuce.
Sims flipped eight clubs onto
the table, including the ace, king
and queen.
Mrs. Suns captured the trick
with her lone jack.
She went ahead to play the
hand neatly, avoiding a heart
finesse which she could not af
ford to take, although it would
have succeeded.
She returned a small diamond,
trumped In dummy, which was
blank in diamonds and then
dropped the remaining trumps,
discarding a spade herself on the
second trump lead.
Two more rounds of diamonds
picked up Culbertson's queen,
making her Jack good.
Culbertson was incensed.
“I still don’t believe there is
such a bid in any system." he
said. “Even the Sims system. One
club—seven clubs. Bah."
Sims nodded agreement.
“I agree heartily with you, Ely,”
he said.
The Culbertsons have won 15
of the 28 rubbers played. The
count of aces and kings has been :
Culbertson, 374 aces and 398
kings.
Simses. 373 aces and 399 klnga.
Until the 28th rubber. In which
they made the grand slam. Sims
and his wife trailed by 5.500
points. They picked up 2.970 points
on the rubber to cut the Culbert
son advantage to 2,530. There was
only an afternoon session Thurs

AINTREE. Eng.. March 39.—<#y—
Once again the favorite* fell be
fore the challenge of the outsider*
in the Grand National Steeplechase
Friday as Reynoidstown, a 23 to 1
shot owned by Major Noel Furlong
and ridden by his son, Freddie,
drove home the winner of the world'e
greatest equine jumping test, be
fore a crowd of 25O.0U).
Dorothy Paget a Golden Miller,
the heavily played favorite and win
ner last year, laded to complete the
trying loar and one-hall mile teal
as Reynoidstown crossed the finish
line three lengths in front of Lady
Lindsay s Blue Prince, another out
sider. John Hay Whitney a Ameri
can-owned Thomond 2nd. the sec
ond choice, was eight lengths bach
in third place, the same position in
which he finished last yesr.
Only 6 Finish Race
Only six of the 27 starters fin
ished. Sir Geoffrey Congreve’s
ligntly weighted Lazy Boots, held
st 66 to 1, was fourth followed by
H B. Brandt s Uncle Bait, and Mias
M. Lark s Bachelor Prince, also long
shots.
Of the remaining four American
owned entries. Cattle Irweil, owned
and ridden by George H (Pete)
Bostick, made the best showing.
The American sportsman kept his
Irish-bred jumper up with the
leaders lor the first two mdae ana
was running a strong second when
Uncle Batt reached the Judges'
stand the first tune around the
course. He fell soon after, however.
M D. Blair s Fouquet, Whitney's
Royal Ransom and Jesse Metcalfe's
Hhereas never got as far sa the
grandstand.
Golden Miller, carrying the top
weight of 175 pounds and which
went to the post the 3 to 7 favorite,
found the weight and pace too ex
acting. He fell at the first fence
alter Valentines Brook on the flrat
turn around the course. With hit
cumulation went up groans from
the thousands of spectators and
snouts of Joy from the bookmakers,
who stood to lose hundreds of thou
sands of dollars, as the favorite nag

ner of the Lincolnshire Wednesday,
in the famous “spring double.”

front and allowed the way the sec
on. time over Bechcr s Brook te
Thomond 2nd and Blue Prince.
Three-florae Race
At the canal turn the American
owned jumper took command of the
situation. From there to the final
stages, the race was a tnree-hora#
affair.
In the final 300-yard dash to the
finish line, however, Thomond 2nd
weakened badly while Furlong drove
Reynoidstown Into the lead and
Jockey Parvrn, up on Blue Prince,
moved up to make a futile chal
lenge. When the three had finished
not another horse was in sight.
Reynoidstown was limed in 9:21.
one second slower than the record
set by Golden Miller last year.
Bosiwick. who took a header from
his horse but was not hurt, wae
downhearted over his ill-luck.
“Castle Irweil Just blundered bad
ly at the canal turn on the second
ume around.” said Peter. We were
fourth at the time and 1 oellev*
might have won as I had not let
him out.”
In contrast Furlong, an amateur
rider, was jubilant.
•*I don't know how I won,” he
declared. “We were obstructed by
a loose horse on the very first Jump.
I felt like standing up and shouting
when we began to pull away in the
final uphill straight away.”
